Meet Asako Iwasawa
, the 2018 winner of the Ronin|Globus Artist-in-Residence Program, and celebrate the opening of Contemporary Talents of Japan — Kacho Fugetsu. This exhibition reinterprets an enduring genre through a contemporary lens. Composed of the kanji for “flower,” “bird,” “wind,” and “moon,” kacho fugetsu evoke both the diverse phenomena of the natural world and a metaphorical significance beyond the physical realm. A number of works by past program participants and finalists will also be on view.
About Ronin|Globus Artist-in-Residence Program:
This program seeks to stimulate cross-cultural dialogue through Japan’s vanguard of visual art.
